Botox could be used to treat depression

Botox could be used to treat depression Researchers found that Botox injections, which smooth out facial lines by partially freezing muscles, also have uplifting side effects that make patients smile.

Psychologists studied 25 people – 12 of whom had Botox injections to the forehead, while the rest had fillers, peals or cosmetic treatments.

All the participants completed a mood questionnaire at least two weeks later.

Patients who received Botox treatment were found to be significantly less depressed, anxious and irritable than those who did not.

Dr Michael Lewis, from the University of Cardiff explained that by blocking frowning, Botox prevents expressions of negative emotion, resulting in a happier mood.
